3 El Toro - SFGAd
4 Phoenix - Knoebel's
5 Boulder Dash - Lake Compounce
6 Tremors - Silverwood
7 tThunderhead - Dollywood

10 Colossos - Heide Park
11 Raven - Holiday World
12 Avalanche - Timber Falls
13 Shivering Timbers - Michigan's Adventure
14 Rampage - Visionland
15 Ozark Wildcat - Celebration City
16 Kentucky Rumbler - Beech Bend
17 Timber Terror - Silverwood
18 Megafobia - Oakwood
19 Coaster - Playland
20 The Legend - Holiday World
21 Comet - Great Escape
22 Cornball Express - Indiana Beach
23 New Mexico Rattler - Cliff's
24 Tonnerre de Zeus - Parc Asterix
25 Grand National - Blackpool


According to Mitch Hawker:
The Voyage won all mutual rider comparisons with other wooden roller coasters and was also the
only one to win the comparison with 'Favorite Steel Coaster' en route to claiming the number one spot.

Two time winner Balder finished second, trailing The Voyage 15 to 9 in their comparison by voters
who have ridden them both. El Toro finished a very strong third (actually edging Balder in their mutual
rider comparison) providing the highest debut for the top two new coasters in the poll's 14 year history.

The Phoenix again defied its age by finishing a relative best ever 4th place. Boulder Dash rounds
out this year's top 5, making it seven years in a row in the top 5 the Connecticut terrain coaster.

Tremors finished a very close sixth, Thunderhead and Hades finished in a tie for seventh, Aska
remained highly rated in ninth, and Colossos finally cracked the top 10 after five years of near misses.

2006's two other new wooden roller coasters also did very well, Beech Bend's Kentucky Rumbler
debuted at #16 and PowerPark's Thunderbird finished at #38.

But more importantly:
At the other end of the poll, California's Grizzly made it 12 straight years in dead last. Intrastate rival
Psyclone made a bid for last, but was preferred 37 to 26 by mutual riders over Grizzly.

I'm surprised Thunderhead looks like it's moved down a couple spots, but I'm not surprised that Voyage made number one.

^^^^That's because El Toro is amazing...in the back at least. Can you say "insane ejector air?" I am surprised that Thunderhead fell down that far though. The top two are no surprise though and from what i hear they deserve it.

yeah, I know, I actually ranked it ahead of Voyage on my ballot. I was just surprised that it finished so high, because I saw quite a few ballots with it ranked down in the 40s and beyond.

OMG! A TALKING MUFFIN!

I'm just happy that I've been on one of the top three (El Toro)!

I'm glad that the vote was a lot better than the Steel poll, where people were ousting Exped. For Superman by putting it as zero. It's nice to see that people are being more fair again!

All 3 Intamin Woodies in the Top 10...I'll take that!

Now some of the other parks need to take them too!


Oh, and I'll still never understand the love for Boulderdash, I've ridden it at some of the "BEST EVENT EVER" events, and didn't think anything of it. Odd.
